Canadian NEW MEDIA assertions “serious, damaging and irresponsible”: CTV VP to CRTC
CTV Inc. says it’s unable to find any producers upset that the Groundbreaker Fund was used to fund the massively popular Canadian Idol television series, and says the show introduced several uniquely Canadian elements and new interactive features that fulfill the fund’s mandate. In a letter written to the CRTC on July 18, CTV president of programming and chair of the media group Susanne Boyce says a Canadian NEW MEDIA July 11/03 story “contains a number of inaccurate statements respecting the Groundbreaker benefit.” A full copy of the letter is posted here. Further details will follow in subsequent issues of CNM. For the record, Boyce did not contact CNM with her concerns before sending the letter to the CRTC.
